They'll make you up a new one, usually while you wait. The price depends on the price of the fittings - some are pretty cheap and some are big bucks.

I am not sure on the OPs Engine but on My Turbo Diesel when I installed a test Gauge I got a Max Oil Pressure of 97 psi. And, the Manual has that it can be as high as 110 psi.
The Oil Pressure Gauge in the Car only goes up to 3 bar about 43.5 psi but the real Oil pressure is higher if your system is working right.

But, it may not matter as Low Pressure Hydraulic Line has a working pressure of at least 300 psi.
